4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 2 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This combined with a sat-nav took us to some beautiful and interesting places. And there is the first problem, because you had to tease out a sta-nav ref from info in the text. Secondly, there needs to be a few more thumbnail street maps. Otherwise, just the job. (Photo is Claude Monet's garden - Giveny

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much information, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This guide covered all regions of the Loire Valley, but we only used one section so the rest was just reference material. This made the book quite chunky and so you could not just tuck it in your pocket when you went out. Also, it would of been useful if the venues had some sort of sat nav ref. in Summary, a good reference book, but not very practical in the field.

I like to have one of these pop-ups with me on most city tours. This one did not disappoint. It does not have a scale, so it was difficult to judge distances.

5.0 out of 5 stars This reminds me of a Mike Lee film, 27 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If, like me you are a fan of the director Mike lee, then you never really expect a beginning, middle and end. Just a series of sketches and events: some hillarious, some pathetic. Once again JS writes with great affection about a bunch of bums who rub along with their community without alienating themselves too much. In one episode they get to taste some moonshine and JS tells of the event: "They swallowed, tasted their tongues, sucked their lips, and there was a far-away look in their eyes. Mack peered into his empty glass as though some holy message were written in the bottom." Story telling does not get much better that that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea i'm afraid., 27 Mar. 2013

Bit too much navel gazing in this story of upstairs-downstairs people. I gave up reading after about a third way through.
